We ask each team to send a summary in local language (recto) and in English (verso) (for Universities from United Kingdom, summary in French (recto) and English (verso)), according to the defined template.

  • The digital file (Word document, 2 Mo maxi) and a school logo must be sent on April 30th, 2021 at the latest.

illustrations can be added in the columns (recommended); recto and verso could contain different pictures. Those summaries will constitute the collection of the students’ work for the tenth edition of the Challenge. This document will be given to the participants during the Suborbital day and will be uploaded on the Student Aerospace Challenge’s website (see "2018-2019 booklet"). It will allow the current and future teams to know the approached topics and the proposed innovations. This collection will also be used as a mean to promote the Student Aerospace Challenge.

The presentation slides will be in English and the Students would have to talk in English. Be careful not to penalize you in time and understanding. The best presentation will be rewarded.
